Why Torahverse?

Our mission is to transform students of Jewish education from learners leaders while building community amongst fellow students. Through student choice and leadership opportunities, we encourage student development and individuation. Our Jewish democratic micro-school model empowers students to be co-creators in their academic, religious, and social environment for the ultimate schooling experience

Students are most effective when an ever-increasing amount of choice is in their hands.

Our learning designs and badge pursuit provides opportunities for students to fill many roles within the learning process.

For maximum student accountability and real world success, democracy within a community of students is essential.

Our student governing system and goal setting ensures students are integrating democracy in the classroom with clear directives in place.

Interdisciplinary, project, and passion based learning increases learning opportunities and is best for long term acquisition of rote skills.

Learning designs and badge system encompass all three types of learning.

Our beliefs

Real-world feedback, self-evaluation, and peer oversight are the most useful assessment data.

Before students advance to the next level, they pass through each of these points for maximum effect.

Student buy-in requires increased access to information and the space to challenge previously held beliefs and assumptions.

Via Socratic Discussions and Launch Landings, students have regular opportunities to challenge themselves and others while developing their beliefs along the way. 

Students learn most effectively from participatory collaboration, calling on assistance when they require it.

Refer to Learning Designs and Badges.

OUR EDUCATIONAL MODEL

Learning

Designs

Learning designs encapsulate the foundation of what it means to be a Jew through relevant, though provoking questions and long term projects.

Badge

System

Self paced learning tracked via a database of badges allows for relevancy, student choice, and a unique educational journey.

 

Assessments

From goal setting to assessments, students are given the tools to evaluate their growth and make decisions that feed into their journey.

Portfolio Development

Students advance with more than grades or transcript. A detailed portfolio encapsulates their growth into a detailed, relevant document that can be used not only for high school, but also any work related experience.

“This is the most valuable (homeschooling) approach to Jewish education I’ve ever seen. Going at my child's pace, building their strengths, individualizing and doing it in a way they enjoy.”
